While WordPress was originally created as blogging software, recently added functionality to the open-sourced software, in addition to some creative theme developers, has resulted in it becoming a popular platform among small businesses. The total amount of premium WordPress business themes purchased from people after visiting Themespotter also nearly doubled from the same period a year ago.
As Themespotter founder Dustin Glass notes, “WordPress is easy to learn how to use, and lets people customize their website without having to learn how to code. WordPress themes let people get an amazing website online within minutes, without needing technical knowledge or a large budget. That makes it such a great option for so many entrepreneurs and small businesses”.
For years, many small business owners had this idea that they had to spend a lot of money for a custom website design in order to justify their business. Web design firms often try to portray website templates as unprofessional and ‘cookie-cutter’. While that might have been true for a long time, website software such as WordPress now provides businesses with the power and flexibility to easily control their own websites. There are now website themes available for nearly every type of small business, ranging from corporate websites to robust eCommerce sites and web apps. Most website themes now contain backend control panels that let people customize their websites without having to touch any code. For businesses looking for a custom website, starting with a template and then using a design firm to modify it can be a great way to save money, and get their websites live faster.
There are many great free WordPress themes available, as well as premium themes that are still very affordable, and often include more robust features, as well as things like free theme updates and technical support. Regarding the increase in the number of WordPress business themes now available, Mr. Glass attributes that in part to professional theme developers realizing the importance of designing websites for niche businesses. “There are only so many different WordPress blog themes that designers can create. Focusing on various niche business themes lets developers be creative and make themes that stand out.
Themespotter expects this trend continue, and has been working to update their website to make it easier for people to search for the best WordPress themes for business, letting people search by category, theme designer, features, style and more.
